About Us

                                  Making Minutes History

Tom Drews founded Making Minutes in 2001 by delivering our What Works Presentation Skills workshops, which focuses on helping people to design and deliver engaging In-Person and Virtual Presentations. Zoom recently hired Tom to deliver a keynote to help their entire sales team present effectively using Zoom, and ultimately close more business.

In 2003 we expanded our offering to include our Making Minutes Productivity and Optimal Living workshops. Our most forward thinking clients saw a need to help their people be more productive, while at the same time being happier, healthier, and more fulfilled. Since then, we've delivered our programs for a variety of companies including Zoom, Google, Fitbit, Genentech, Expedia, and Cisco.

Tom has over 20 years of experience delivering keynotes and workshops for all kinds of companies. Prior to founding Making Minutes, he was Vice President of Sales for two fast growing technology companies in San Francisco. He also ran a sportswear company selling merchandise to 87 department store chains. Tom learned to deliver entertaining and engaging programs having spent time in Hollywood where he studied improvisation, acted in commercials, and played small parts on Days of Our Lives and General Hospital.
